It’s not a joke. MBB takes plenty of B4 people.

uplifting

What do you do at B4? Certainly not going to be laughed at if you have relevant experience

I’m not in a B4 strategy arm, mainly transformation-type engagements

I got a couple of different job offers. I’m a manager in Strategy and Consulting but I’m a bit lost on which one to accept. I’ve been in three of the big 4 in the last 10 years. From the offers, some are from company’s well known globally but not really amazing benefits/strategic roles or companies not well known but great benefits and roles. I think I care too much about having a well known logo in my resume. Any advice on how to prioritize/make the right decision?

Hey guys, need some advice. I was fortunate enough to get the Consortium fellowship at Ross but am also stuck on the CBS waitlist and am still planning to apply to Wharton in R3. Assuming I get into CBS/Wharton, is there that much of a difference between them to forgo scholarship money? For context, I want to get into product management at FAANG/fintech with pursuing MBB as a plan B. Thanks in advance!

Right now I'm interning at a shop that I do enjoy. The work that's coming out of it isn't the most exciting, but it's okay. People are great and I seem to be doing well considering they're thinking of bringing me on full-time. Not super open to remote. However, I have another internship lined up right after this one. I really like the work this agency is doing, particularly from the account I'd be working on. So lots of potential for bookworthy stuff. Also, open to remote. Wwyd?

So I’ve only been a month at a tech company as a CSM and they liked my work enough to move me internally to another team as an Enterprise CSM. I said I would accept an interviewer to learn more about the role. Afterwards the new hiring manager said they want to move forward with me. Long story short, the directors of the sales had an opening and want to move. My question are: Am I in a position to negotiate? What should I be asking for? Total ARR I’m responsible for is $7.5m around 100 accounts
